Personally polynesians are too mixed to pass for southeast asian on average.

Alot of people try pushing the idea that samoans, tongans, or fijians dont look any different from southeast asian, especially in the west
 
That might be true for the broad category southeast asian, but if you look at the more specific category of indigenous Taiwanese there is a notable resemblance to Polynesians. In a 2006 documentary called "Made in Taiwan" a well-known Maori and a well-known Samoan retraced their ancestors' migrations by travelling through tropical Polynesia and finally back to Taiwan. As they walked around the streets where a population of southern indigeneous Taiwanese lived they made remarks like "he could be my uncle". To them the resemblance was obvious.

DNA analysis shows that autosomally Polynesians who have only Polynesian ancestors are 75-80% of indigenous Taiwanese origin on average, with the other 20-25% being mainly Melanesian from the Bismark Archipelago. While individual variation means some will appear more Taiwanese than others, many Polynesians could pass for indigeneous Taiwanese.

Fijians generally identify as Melanesian rather than Polynesian. They have a larger proportion of Melanesian ancestry.

So mollucans and east timorese have roughly the same amount of oceanian admixture as polynesians but on average smaller in stature
